BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

A. Front

“All Around the World” is a song by Lisa Stansfield released in late 1989 for her album Affection. It is her biggest hit to date. Written and produced by Lisa Stansfield, Ian Devaney and Andy Morris, the debut solo single by Stansfield became a massive international hit.

It spent two weeks at #1 on the UK singles chart in November 1989 and reaching the top in 11 other countries. In April 1990, it peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is also the fifth single by a white female singer to top the Billboard R&B chart after Ella Mae Morse’s “Shoo Shoo Baby” (December 1943), Little Peggy March’s “I Will Follow Him” (May 1963), Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party” (June 1963), and Teena Marie’s “Ooo La La La” in 1988. The track also topped the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, and reached #7 on the Adult Contemporary chart.

    Received her first LP on vinyl soon after it’s release right from Switzerland accompanied with Soul To Soul’s 12″ “The Power” and Phil Collins 7″ “Another Day in Paradise” back in 1989.Bringing back good memories to me. Never heard the Long Version nor the American Club Remix before. It is still downloading, can’t wait to hear such perfectly produced song cleaned and arranged by you. Thank you, “THE KING” of 12 inches.

    Wasnt that Snap, not Soul II Soul?

    [Reply]

    Sasomom Reply:

    You are right SimonP, actually it was Soul II Soul’s “Get A Life” that I was referring to not Snap’s “The Power” , my mistake (it was done unintentionally while I was looking at my 12″ singles from 1989 and 1990). Thank you for noticing that.

    Another great post, Paul. Question. Correct me if i am wrong but the American Club Remix has NEVER appeared on any CD releases, right? I have never heard of this 11 minute plus remix.

    Thanks

    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Gilbert. To the best of my knowledge I don’t think the “American Club Remix” is on CD 🙂

    Gilbert Reply:

    i thought so too… Can’t wait to listen to it as this is my fave Lisa Stansfield song. Thanks and stay well Paul.

    Christian Reply:

    Thanks Paul! To my knowledge, the American Club Mix has not been released on CD, but it was released on iTunes in 2006. I personally edit it into Part 1 and 2 at the 7:47 mark.

    many, many thanks for this post paul, have been waiting to hear a u.s. version of this for many years. I own the u.k. 12″, remix 12″ and the cds. have a look on my blog if you like, i have a few more lisa on there. i knew she was doing music many years before this track solo and with blue zone u.k. but really got into her when she teamed up with coldcut for people hold on. Loved your blogs for many a year, in all its formats. Still remember my first d/l was jane child’s dont wanna fall in love (t.r. is my all time producer / remixer)

  11. Simon Says:

    Had already ripped my own copy of this and the UK Remix 12″, but the straight up Long Version is by far the best mix.

    Anyone heard the Barry White duet version that was on a Japanese EP?

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    The long version is my favorite too. I love that it stays pretty true to the original. Have not heard the Barry White duet but there is a 12″ for it.

    Giorgio-Greece Reply:

    hi simon,

    yes,i’ve heard that version but not from the japanese ep.
    if i remember well,it was a 7inch (!)
    i’ll try to look at discogs!!!
    it’s a fantastic duet version!!!!
    hope dj paul will do something about it!!!!!!

    [Reply]

    Simon Reply:

    Probably the same version, the Japanese EP was just a little 6(?) track collection. Tis on Discogs and called Real Hip Selection, I think…

    Correction: Real Woman (Hip Selection) !

    HI Paul – I love all the 12″ singles by Lisa Stansfield. There are just many superb mixes particularly the U.S. Arista 12″ pressing that are not on the CD singles. It would be heavenly if you have some of those in your collection, such as This Is The Right Time, You Can’t Deny It, Change, Live Together, All Woman (b/w dance track Everything Will Be Better), Set Your Loving Free etc. Thanks for this post, once again. ;-}

    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Chwee. I do in fact have some of the singles you mentioned. I will be posting those in the future 🙂

    Yep you are correct Omar she does have a new album coming out soon 🙂

  18. ric Says:

    Timeless single that won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song in 1990, and it was inspired by Barry White! When Barry first met Lisa after its success, he told her that he recognized his influence in that single, especially in that spoke intro. And it was that meeting that later led to that duet version that was discussed in the earlier replies.
    Also, the “ay ay ay” bit was actually Lisa just mucking around in the studio during recording…but it ended up being on the final recording, and the trademark bit of the song!
    Thank you Paul for a lossless of the American Remix.
